I opened up the large dome around 19:30, I had had more issues with Plate Solving on Saturday evening's imaging after the Beaver presentation, however with help from a knowledgeable member on the Cloudy Nights forum this was solved with the tick of a single settings box in my acquisition software. Also the auto meridian flip worked flawlessly and re-acquired the target perfectly. The only thing that I have to watch on the flip is the power lead popping off the back of my camera, I think a bit off tape will be the solution as it is not the tightest fit. It took while to get imaging do to a number of minor technical issues, however once everything was sorted I stayed until 05:30 with (hopefully) a lot of good data to show for it.
